Newcastle Jets vs Melbourne Victory Preview & Prediction

Both Newcastle Jets and Melbourne Victory have endured nightmare seasons to date – who, if any, of these teams will emerge triumphant on Saturday afternoon?

The Jets come into this clash on the back of a six-match losing streak dating back to February. They’ve only managed four goals during that period and simply don’t have the squad to compete in the A-League this season.

The club has suffered continuous ownership issues for the last couple of seasons and are a basket case right now. They don’t have any viable options in attack and although you can’t fault their effort, Newcastle just aren’t good enough.

Victory meanwhile are even worse – they are rock bottom on the ladder with just two wins from 14 games.

Their situation is arguably more unforgivable than the Jets because at least the Victory have a talented roster that could potentially do some damage. However, for whatever reason, things just aren’t clicking at Victory and haven’t been for a couple of years now.

Victory’s defence has been woeful all season – they’ve conceded 34 goals in 14 games, which is seven more than the next worst side, while they’ve leaked at least three goals in five of their last six matches.

The good news for Victory is that the Jets don’t have the firepower to score that many goals, so I rate them a good chance of claiming the win here.

There’s absolutely no reason the Jets should be $1.75 with the bookies, so while I’m hesitant to back Victory, the $4.00 on offer for them to win is too good to refuse.
